Editing for a book

I have a non-fiction book project that will be approximately 100 pages. It's a collection of stories about my marriage. I am looking for developmental editing or copyediting. Just to help with the flow and structure. Project due for release in June of 2018.

I want to the book to have a conversational flow vs. a business flow.

See a sample story in the attachment. The book contains 51 stories.

It would be helpful to see a sample edit of the attached story. It doesn't have to be the whole story, a few paragraphs or whatever you feel would represent you the best. Thanks

I want to clarify the type of editing I need. I desire developmental editing to help with the structure and flow and to spice up my writing. Thanks.
